    I have been working at Bain & Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great leadership, amazing opportunities, intellectually stimulating, outstanding benefits, feels like family.

    Cons

    Nothing to report here - Bain has exceeded my expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! I've been an EA for 15+ years and have never felt more included in the company and culture as I have at Bain. Bain cares about everyone (not just the consulting staff) and they prove it every day.

    Pros

    Excellent mentorship, terrific client base, and a system built around maximizing individual development, client results, and work-life balance. The company does an excellent job of trying to keep employees happy while taking no shortcuts in providing maximum value to their clients.

    Cons

    It is a consulting firm, so the quality of life and day-to-day work enjoyment depends on the nature of the client and engagement type that you are assigned to.
